Subject: RE: BS: New news on the pandemic COVID-19
Sound arguments, Nigel, but suppose we sacked thousands of doctors and nurses for being unjabbed. I think the damage done in that way by exacerbating the staffing crisis would outdo any damage caused by their staying at work. Sometimes it's a toss-up between morals (if you think that enforced vaccination is moral - not for me, thanks) and pragmatism. I always come back to the argument for persuasion, made as high-pressure as you like. And let's not forget that frequent testing of unvaccinated staff is far more possible these days. I still think that unvaccinated people are wrong-headed, but, looking at it long-term, talking them round is the proper solution.

I don't like masks but I'm fully jabbed up and I have a big stash of test kits (wise virgins accumulated supplies well before the panicky pre-Christmas rush). I'm testing twice a week and doing additional tests when I visit anyone's house. Were I to test positive I'd look up the isolation advice and follow it, and tell anyone who I might have infected. As for telling the authorities, they can go to hell.
